View Full Version : Menu with external javascript or similar

07-08-2005, 10:21 PM
I need a menu that accesses an external javascript file (or other type) for the contents of the menu. That is, When I add a link to my menu, I only want to have to add it once, in an external file that every page uses for the menu items. I know there was one on Dynamic Drive before, but i can't find one now. Does anyone know of any suggestions?

Well it depends.

Do you just want a series of links on same line/different line?

Or do you want one of the "all singing all dancing" menus?

If its the first, you would just save the file as filename.js, with no <script> </script> tags in it. For example the following is a example of external .js file

document.write("my name is ....... !");

Then to link that into a file, you simply do

<script src="filename.js"></script>

Then when you want to edit the menu/whatever you just update filename.js

Hope this helps
